shrimp molt snack


Can't find the amphibian board for some reason.
A shrimp molted and left its shell laying around. My ADF ate a little bit of it. This may or may not have been going on for a few months.
The snails definitely chow down on this thing, but is it okay for my frog to be munching on this molt?

Thanks.

Yes, it's fine. Any creature that is eating the moult is just "recycling" it for the calcium etc. If you find a moult stays around for more than a day or so, take it out and dispose of it. You don't want it to decay and foul the water. But if they other tank dwellers get to it first, just consider it nutrition!

Frogs and loaches act like they're starved all the time. I think this is ADF mood-eating :P
